Medicare spending for hospice care has increased dramatically in recent years – and so has hospice scrutiny.  It is imperative for hospice programs to implement a compliance program to protect their operations from fraud and abuse.  Understanding hospice’s Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Report (PEPPER) can facilitate prioritizing areas on which to focus auditing and monitoring.

This webinar will create a clearer understanding of PEPPER and how it can be used by CEOs, administrators, CFOs, compliance officers, and utilization review/quality improvement staff to develop strategies and implement processes for strengthening documentation and billing systems with consistent compliance practices.


  • Elements of a comprehensive compliance program
  • Hospice data statistics for target areas identified by CMS as high risk for improper payment
  • Prioritizing areas for compliance auditing and monitoring
  • Integrating auditing and monitoring into the QAPI process
    • Hospice billing compliance audit tool
